Charles American Press AMUSEMENTS AND ARTS BAROQUE MASTERPIECES Veteran Belgian Violinist Records Bach's Sonatas BACH: SONATAS AND PAR- TITAS FOR SOLO VIOLIN — Arthur Grnmianx, vfolfn (Philips Stert-o, 2-12" records, PHS 2-906). Arthur Grumiaux. the veteran Belgian violinist, is known to United States music lovers through his many recordings for the Epic label. Since the Philips company of the Netherlands has entered the American record market on its own, and dispensed with its distribution agreement with Epic, Grumiaux will now be found on the Philips label in this country. This two-record set of Bach's sonatas and partitas is Grumiaux' •first for the new label in this country, but the style of playing is familiar. Grumiaux has always been noted for his beautiful, smooth tone and his self-effacing musical full of a wonderfully effusive warmth. The recording was made with Grumiaux' Stradivarius violin, "Ex-General D u p o n t 1727," so called' because it was once the property of a French general. A short history of the instrument is given in the jacket notes. The jacket itself is worth a word or two. The cover is decorated with designs of Venetian gros- point lace. The jacket notes include an essay on the music, and a facsimile of part of Bach's original manuscript, which Grumiaux utilized during the recordings. All things considered, this is quite an album — and to cap the climax, it offers all the music on two discs, rather than on the usual three. SCHUBERT: SONGS — Gerard taste. He has expended his lal-! Souzay, baritone: DaHon Baldwin, American pianist Dalton Baldwin provides able accompaniment. SCHUBERT AND BRAHMS SONGS—Vienna Choir Boys (Philips Stereo, PHS 900-002). This record displays the capacities of the Vienna boys' choir, a justly famous children's group. The boys sing choruses and solo songs from Brahms and Schubert. Included are Forelle, Das Dorf- chen, Psalm 23 and An die Musik of Schubert, and a collection of Brahms love songs. The treble voices seem to be more successful in achieving the spirit and meaning of Schubert than of Brahms.

Bach's solo violin works are not the easiest of music to perform. There are two other complete versions available, but this is the first stereo recording. One still wonders about stereo recordings for solo instruments, but evidently the customers want stereo or nothing. The performances here are in keeping with the Grumiaux tradition — competent, disciplined, and debut this month. Souzay's last album (on another label) was a marvelously shaped recital of Debussy songs. The singer here proves that he is equally at home in the German repertory. The new disc contains 22 Schubert songs, including many old favorites — Forelle, Heindenroe- slein, Doppelgaenger, Erlkoenig— plus a heard. number that are seldom Not many conductors are Paray's peer in bringing to life the bounce and passion of Gallic music, as he proves once more. This album contains the overtures to Herold's "Zampa," Auber's "The Crown Diamond," Thomas' "Mignon" and "Raymond," Boieldiue's "La Dame Blanche" and Adam's "If I Were King." Rousing sound is the equal of the rousing music. —STAGEY. -Junior tefiters Quit en- SIGHT GOES WESTERN — Dallas policeman George Kent unlimbers his guitar before going on the job as jailer at a police substation.

A mirror reflects a beam of light back according to the angle the beam takes as it strikes the mirror. As you see with a straight mirror (below) the light rays go In and come right tack so you look natural. But Hank Is.looking Into the spoon as It curves In. Follow the dotted lines from the boy's chin la the center diagram. Because of the mirror's curve the ray from his chin strikes at an angle and so is thrown off at another angle as you can see by following the dotted line. This brings the chin up where the top of the head should be. In the same way the ray from the top of the boy's head bounces off the mirror to the point where the chin should be. With a chin on top and the top of the head below, naturally the image is reversed and the boy sees himself upside down. Wanda Is look- Ing on the outside of the spoon as shown in the third diagram. The rays come back without reversing her, but because of the curve, they are thrown around and this makes her Image distorted even if it is right side up. » « * FOR YOU TO DO: Polish a large tablespoon so that it is like a mirror, then look in the curve of th« inside and see all the distortions you can get by tipping it back, forth, and sideways. Then hold up your hand, wlggla your fingers and you will get a real shock at what you see. Q-zi » * • 0*1. (Andrew Carnara of Woonsocket, R. I., wins $10 for this question.

"They are going to start telling stories through Ness' eyes, from his viewpoint." This is going to mean quite a few changes. For one thing, Ness, who apparently never had a home j life but just lived in his office and 'existed on cardhoard-flavored coffee and drugstore sandwiches is soon to acquire a wife. We will not see her, according to the plan, but Ness will occasionally take time off from tracking down wrong-doers to telephone home. Most'drastic of all , the changes mean that we'll see our Eliot as a living, breathing human with faults and imperfections instead of an epic figure of righteous vengeance.

He has another credential as elder statesman to the film industry. As adviser to A. P. Giannini, he helped finance movies during their formative years. "Without the Bank of Italy i now Bank of America), the movie business would never have grown to what it became," said Crisp. The actor is now making his "Somebody has got to blow the whistle. Somebody has got to stay on the set and say, 'No, you can't spend $5 million for that sequence; we'll find some other way to gel the point across.' " 'Cleopatra' could have been made for $7',i million right here in Hollywood.
